“We’ve been in Milwaukee for over 168 years. We continue to grow as a firm and this move is our commitment to continue to be in the downtown area,” said David Krutz, Michael Best’s Firm Managing Partner. “We know that by teaming up with BMO and Irgens the project will be successful, and we look forward to working in a modern office environment with an emphasis on light, technology, and collaboration.”
Once complete, the new BMO Harris Financial Center will be a 25-story Class-A office tower offering panoramic views of downtown Milwaukee, creating an ideal work environment for the firm and other tenants.
